kodi::gui::dialogs::TextViewer::Show("The Wizard of Oz (1939 film)",
"The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical comedy-drama fantasy film "
"produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and the most well-known and commercially "
"successful adaptation based on the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz "
"by L. Frank Baum. The film stars Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale. The film"
"co-stars Terry the dog, billed as Toto; Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, "
"Frank Morgan, Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton, with Charley Grapewin and "
"Clara Blandick, and the Singer Midgets as the Munchkins.\n"
"Notable for its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, musical score and "
"unusual characters, over the years it has become an icon of American popular "
"culture. It was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture but "
"lost to Gone with the Wind. It did win in two other categories including Best "
"Original Song for \"Over the Rainbow\". However, the film was a box office "
"disappointment on its initial release, earning only $3,017,000 on a $2,777,000 "
"budget, despite receiving largely positive reviews. It was MGM's most "
"expensive production at that time, and did not completely recoup the studio's "
"investment and turn a profit until theatrical re-releases starting in 1949.\n"
"The 1956 broadcast television premiere of the film on CBS re-introduced the "
"film to the wider public and eventually made the presentation an annual "
"tradition, making it one of the most known films in cinema history. The "
"film was named the most-viewed motion picture on television syndication by "
"the Library of Congress who also included the film in its National Film "
"Registry in its inaugural year in 1989. Designation on the registry calls "
"for efforts to preserve it for being \"culturally, historically, and "
"aesthetically significant\". It is also one of the few films on UNESCO's "
"Memory of the World Register.\n"
"The Wizard of Oz is often ranked on best-movie lists in critics' and public "
"polls. It is the source of many quotes referenced in modern popular culture. "
"It was directed primarily by Victor Fleming (who left production to take "
"over direction on the troubled Gone with the Wind production). Noel Langley, "
"Florence Ryerson and Edgar Allan Woolf received credit for the screenplay, "
"but there were uncredited contributions by others. The songs were written "
"by Edgar \"Yip\" Harburg (lyrics) and Harold Arlen (music). The incidental "
"music, based largely on the songs, was composed by Herbert Stothart, with "
"interspersed renderings from classical composers.\n");
